Certified Organic products are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, or GMO’s.

The Bud logo represents everything that Australian organics is about. It reassures customers that all the product ingredients have been certified to the Australian Certified Organic Standard and have met rigorous certification checks. It can only be used on packaging for products which have achieved certification through ACO. 

But did you know, Organic isn’t just about producing products that are chemical free; it is also a holistic approach to growing and handling food and plants. The organic system is “linked”, it covers soil, plants, animals, food and people.

When you buy products or seek out products that have the lovely little bud logo, you are in fact being assured that from start to stop the ingredients and processes are the highest quality and sourced sustainably. That’s why many people nowadays are determined to find certified organic products and more importantly those products carrying the logo which signifies that products are home grown in our Aussie backyard.

Educated consumers are happy to pay a fair price for the guarantee that the organic produce they purchase is supporting farmers who aim towards ecologically sustainable practices – looking after the environment we all share.

The only way you can be assured you are buying genuine, organic products is to purchase those certified with Australian Certified Organic.

The ACO Certification Ltd BUD can only be used on packaging of products which have achieved certification through the certification scheme. Certified operators can apply to use the BUD on their promotional material to support their organic claims.

The Australian Certified Organic Standard is one of the most respected and rigorous standards in the world for organic production, and is published by the organic industry not-for-profit representative group, Australian Organic.

There you have it, some pretty important reasons that you need to keep in mind when purchasing quality items that are both safe and sourced sustainably. You may be confused at times when seeing labels stating, “organic ingredients”, this does not mean the product is certified organic. Unless the product has the ACO BUD logo, the product is not Certified and therefore; you may need to do further research to find what you are looking for.

Enjoy your Organic journey

Stay safe and Be healthy
